Bears offense needs to replace Hanie…fast

I never thought I’d see the Chicago Bears offense get worse than when Rex Grossman was leading it – Boy, was I wrong.

With all apologies to Colorado State alums, Caleb Hanie can’t throw his way through a paper bag, leading the Bears to a 10-3 defeat at the hands of the lowly Kansas City Chiefs.

The defense did their job. The only touchdown came off a bogus “hail mary” that didn’t get knocked down quite enough. I can’t say the same thing about the offense. Without Matt Forte to make it look respectable, the offense looked like a geriatric pirate with two peglegs moving down the field – totalling just 181 total yards and going 0-for-11 on third down conversions.

When Jay Cutler was in, the team was on a roll with a 7-3 record – The playoffs looked inevitable. Now at 7-5, and the rest of the NFC crawling up their backs, it looks like it’s inevitable that they WON’T get a wildcard spot.

Dear Bears management: At this point, if you want any chance of making the playoffs, it’s time to bring someone else in. I don’t care if it’s Donovan McNabb, Brett Favre or Vinny Testaverde. Just find someone, anyone.

Think the Bears should stick with Hanie or bring someone else in? Let me know what you think in the comments:

  1. I think we should give Enderle a shot. At this time of the season i don’t think it’s feasible to bring a new QB to learn a play book,

  2. This season is over for the Bears. I’m just sorry that it’s going to take a 20-3 loss to the Broncos next week before anyone realizes it.

    • Unfortunately you’re probably right. The only thing that helped them this week was all the rest of the NFC Wildcard contenders lost as well. That won’t last forever…
